Students can receive tuition assistance through academic scholarships based on academic achievement and/or financial need. In addition, all academic scholarships are based on the availability of funds and are awarded for one academic year.
Awarding starts in December and continues as funds permit for the upcoming school year. There are no academic tuition waivers awarded for the summer term.
Academic scholarships are tuition waivers and cannot be combined. The amount of the tuition waiver cannot exceed the cost of tuition.
Academic tuition waiver scholarships are awarded based on applicant’s eligibility, date of admission and enrollment. Awarding will continue while funding permits.
